Crab cavities are adapted as the baseline design for the LHC HiLumi upgrade to achieve head-on beam-beam collisions for further improvement in luminosity. A 400-MHz compact RF dipole crab cavity design was developed by a joint effort between Old Dominion University and SLAC under the support of US LARP program. This design has shown very favorable RF parameters and can fit into the available beamline spacing for either vertical and horizontal crabbing schemes. A niobium prototype cavity based on such a design has been manufactured for vertical test. In addition, there are stringent wakefield requirements that needed to be met for such a cavity in order to preserve the quality of the circulating beams. In this paper, we will discuss different damping schemes for such a compact design and present the HOM coupler designs to meet the damping requirements.

We report on the recent progress at Jefferson Lab in developing ultra high gradient and high Q0 superconducting radio frequency (SRF) cavities for future SRF based machines. A new 1300 MHz 9-cell prototype cavity is being fabricated. This cavity has an optimized shape in terms of the ratio of the peak surface field (both magnetic and electric) to the acceleration gradient, hence the name low surface field (LSF) shape. The goal of the effort is to demonstrate an acceleration gradient of 50 MV/m with Q0 of 1010 at 2 K in a 9-cell SRF cavity. Fine-grain niobium material is used. Conventional forming, machining and electron beam welding method are used for cavity fabrication. New techniques are adopted to ensure repeatable, accurate and inexpensive fabrication of components and the full assembly. The completed cavity is to be first mechanically polished to a mirror-finish, a newly acquired in-house capability at JLab, followed by the proven ILC-style processing recipe established already at JLab. In parallel, new single-cell cavities made from large-grain niobium material are made to further advance the cavity treatment and processing procedures, aiming for the demonstration of an acceleration gradient of 50 MV/m with Q0 of 2·1010 at 2K.

  The Muon Accelerator Program (MAP) collaboration is developing an ionization cooling channel for muon beams. Ionization cooling channel designs call for the operation of high-gradient, normal-conducting RF cavities in multi-Tesla solenoidal magnetic fields. However, strong magnetic fields have been shown to limit the maximum achievable gradient in RF cavities. This gradient limit is characterized by RF breakdown and damage to the cavity surface. To study this issue, we have developed an experimental program based on a modular pillbox cavity operating at 805 MHz. The modular cavity design allows for the evaluation of different cavity materials - such as beryllium - which may ameliorate or circumvent RF breakdown triggers. Modular cavity components may furthermore be prepared with different surface treatments, such as high-temperature baking or chemical polishing. This poster presents the design and experimental status of the modular cavity, as well as future plans for the experimental program.  
WEPFI083 High Power Tests of the 2-Pin Waveguide Structures 2890

  An X-band Two-Pin Waveguide Structure has been designed to study the influence of power flow on rf breakdown. Three different sets of pins will be tested at SLAC. These sets were designed to achieve a similar peak surface electric field on one of the pins for input rf power levels that vary by about an order of magnitude (the other pin is used for matching). Two sets of pins have been tested so far, and the breakdown rate was found to be strongly dependent on the power flow. In this paper, we review the experimental setup, the complete set of results and their implications.
